Interestingly enough, what most people don't realize is that they had to have special equipment made that was 1/2 size of regular equipment to make them look normal-sized. All of them except Phil were actually under 4 1/2 feet with Phil coming in at 4' 10". It was all an optical illusion that apparently fooled a lot of people. Now a woman twice their height would still be over 8' tall and quite awkward at parties so I think that is just a song-writing poetic license thing.

Little people. Big music.

The inspiration for that scene was an actual math error made by Black Sabbath, when a stage set was designed that was larger than a typical arena stage.

Ed Van Halen says he can't watch Spinal Tap because all those things have actually happened to him.

So in short, if the shorts were that short then other things must have been coming up short also as public decency violations were seemingly in short supply too.
